A Sugar tax

The leading and quite easily the best think tank in Australia has come up with a 'sugar 'tax for the Federal tax.
Stephen Duckett and Trent Wiltshire have written a case for it.

(See Ross Gittins  and THE KOUK as well.)

What does this do. The tax attacks obesity which is a growing problem ( pun intended) in Australia  as well as gaining revenue to the government. A win win situation if ever there was one.  See my old mate from the markets Rory Robertson on the problem of sugar.

This tax should be implemented as soon as possible!!
